Hazel graduated with a BS degree in Chemical Engineering, although she secretly wanted to major in journalism. Thank God she never stopped writing because as luck and a whole lot of work would have it, a couple of tech blogs took her on, more came a-knocking, and now she's got the best of both worlds: crunching numbers throughout the day while writing about all sorts of crazy gear at night.

Pranksters live for Halloween, and Youtube magician-slash-prankster Rahat is no exception. Here he is prancing around with a new product he came up with in collaboration with Morphsuits. You basically wear the glove that comes with a portion of a severed wrist at the bottom. The glove illusion makes it seem like your hands in there, when it's actually outside of the glove, just writhing or twitching as you fit in its 'severed' form.
